Software Update: Waterfox 2020.07

Version 2020.07 of Waterfox has been released. Waterfox is a web browser based on the source code of Firefox. The project was started in 2011 by the then 16-year-old Alex Kontos and was one of the first 64bit browsers on the market. There are two versions of the browser available. Waterfox Classic is based on the legacy code, still has support for npapi plugins and only gets security updates and bug fixes. Waterfox Current is based on modern source code, has no plug-in whitelist, and does not send telemetry to Mozilla or Waterfox. The changelog for this release looks like this:
